Abby accepted that she can’t measure up to her beautiful, magnetic sister Tess a long time ago, and knows exactly what she is: Second best. Invisible. 
Until the accident. 
Now Tess is in a coma, and Abby’s life is on hold. It may have been hard living with Tess, but it's nothing compared to living without her. 
She's got a plan to bring Tess back though, involving the gorgeous and mysterious Eli, but then Abby learns something about Tess, something that was always there, but that she’d never seen. 
Abby is about to find out that truth isn't always what you think it is, and that life holds more than she ever thought it could...
First Paragraph: I lean forward and look at Tess.

Between Here and Forever was a bit different. This is the second book I've read by her, and I have to say she is a fantastic writer. I didn't like this one as much as I loved the other novel I read by her, Perfect You, but it was really good. 

Abby kind of annoyed me. A lot. But at the same time I really liked her. I loved how devoted to her sister was and how much she wanted her to wake up. But she did it all for the wrong reasons! Which I won't get into. 

I LOVED Eli! Abby and him are perfect for each other! I love the relationship they have in this book and I love how Eli helps her deal with Tess and helps her grow by the end of the book, and she helps Eli grow as well! I also love Clement! 

The situation with Claire and Tess was a great addition to the book, though I kind of guessed about them after a little while. 

This book was a pretty light and fast read, which I loved. I was able to read it within a couple of days, if I was able to sit there for a bit I would of been able to finish it in one day. The chapters were short. 

The ending really made me want to know more, it almost didn't seem like a standalone novel. Elizabeth's writing really keeps you reading and wanting to know more after each chapter.

I'm not really sure of what to write about this book. I seem lost for words for reviews lately.

Overall, I really liked this book. There were a few things that really irked me, but not enough to make me give it a bad review. Elizabeth Scott is a really good writer and I plan on reading more of her books soon.

Cover: The cover is beautiful! End of story.


  1. I've heard a lot about this book and it's been mostly good things. I know a lot of people were anticipating it's arrival. I haven't read anything by Elizabeth Scott but I'm pretty anxious to do so now. This book seems light and entertaining enough. Great and honest review, darling.

  2. I like this book quite a lot. I understood Abby because I was just like her growing up. I had no confidence in myself what-so-ever, so her second guessing everyones good intentions made sense to me. The situation between Claire and Tess was something I figured out, still I was shocked because I didn't think my inkling could be true.
